Miracles cluster around Elijah as around Moses and Jesus. Elijah calls Israel to return to the covenant. His message is that of John the Baptist – repent and produce fruit in keeping with repentance! His ministry is a pivotal one too. What struck you as you read this history?
“O man of God, please let my life, and the life of these fifty servants of yours, be precious in your sight.”
As the captain of the fifty, the third set of men who had approached the prophet – As he cried to Elijah it is clear he did so with great exclamation and fear!
So for us, this is to be our attitude when we come before the Lord in repentance and belief.
And how good is it that YES! In Jesus our lives _are_ precious in the sight of Almighty God.
Hallelujah, wonderful Saviour!
* God Above,
Wonderful, counsellor, mighty God – May Your Name be praised.
Thank You that You count our lives as precious in Your sight, lambs rescued by the Good Shepherd, Hearts healed by the Great Physician.
Thank You for the life we have in You; Through Your work as one God, three persons, Father, Son and Spirit.
